Why would you recommend this place that is so inconspicuous that you may not even find it? There are two reasons.
1. the hot spring water of this foot bath is drawn from the Dogo hot spring. So, it’s the same water, no matter what it is.
Whether you come down from Ishimouji Temple or tired of shopping, sit by the foot bath and soak your feet, it is really refreshing. On a hot day, you may not want to go into the hot spring to take a bath, soaking your feet here is simply a feeling of heaven on earth.
2. The most crucial thing is that the clock here will dance at the whole hour! Every hour, the clock starts to perform the daily life of the ancient people of Matsuyama, which is very interesting.
The location is on the side of the main entrance of Dogo shopping street. You can see the bell. It’s just a short walk from the train in Dogo. Not to be missed!
